2017 NMHC Annual Meeting Recap

As multifamily executives gathered in San Diego last week for the back-to-back 2017 NMHC Apartment Strategies and NMHC Annual Meeting events, the big question was what happens next—for multifamily, the economy and the nation at large.

NMHC assembled more than 60 speakers from inside and outside the industry to shed some light on areas of uncertainty, from rising interest rates and future housing demand to tax reform and Trump administration policy—and pretty much everything in between. On the latter, both Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former presidential candidate and Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney offered their takes on how the Trump administration is likely to reshape things at home and abroad.

But amid all the serious discussions, there were moments of levity throughout the three days of events. Actor and comedian Dana Carvey delighted guests at the annual dinner and many also rallied for Shelters to Shutters, both through generous donations and an early morning loop around the Seaport Village.
